Match Preview - Greenock Morton vs. Ayr United 

SPFL Championship - Saturday 6th March 2021

On Saturday, the Honest Men travel to Greenock for a massive game at the foot of the Championship. Three consecutive home defeats and a run of just one win in 10 leaves United in ninth place and saw the departure of management team Mark Kerr and Mick McArdle on Sunday .

Interim manager Davie White will be looking for the team to start converting chances, with Ayr drawing a blank in three of their last four matches including last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at home to Arbroath.

 

Opposition

Morton head into the game as the only side in the division to take fewer points than Ayr in their last five games. The Ton are without a league win since before Christmas but have drawn six of their last nine games, including the last two.

Their last outing was a 2-2 draw at home to Dundee, the Dark Blues twice equalising after Craig McGuffie and Luca Colville had put Morton ahead. Ayr United Academy graduate McGuffie also got a goal in Ton’s previous match, a 1-1 draw at Tynecastle against league leaders Hearts.

Team News

Andre Wright misses out however he could be back in the squad for Tuesday night.

The Manager Says:

There is no doubt that the start of the week was tough and emotional for everyone however we have a professional group and very quickly we had the focus on the game at Morton. We need the players to start enjoying their football again and we told all of them at the start of the week they had a clean slate and how they performed in training this week would be the basis for the team selection. It is a huge game for the club and we need players that are up for the fight and understand what this means to Ayr United

Head to Head

Ayr United wins: 63

Draws: 36

Morton wins: 51

The Honest Men are without a win against Morton in the last three meetings between the sides following a eight-game unbeaten run against the Greenock side.

The two sides played out a draw in their last meeting, at Somerset Park at the end of 2020. Aidan Nesbitt opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 26th minute with Luke McCowan cancelling that effort out 12 minutes later.

Our last trip to Cappielow was one to forget: Ayr led 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining thanks to a Lewis Strapp own-goal and Cammy Smith strike, despite Aaron Muirhead being sent-off seven minutes into the second-half. Goals from Strapp, Oliver and Blues between the 83rd and 88th minute, however, gifted the Ton all three points.
